Nick Coghlan added the comment:

The concern with using the "generate a private module that can be cached" 
approach is that it doesn't generalise well - any time you want to 
micro-optimise a new module that way, you have to add a custom Makefile rule.

By contrast, Argument Clinic is a general purpose tool - adopting it for 
micro-optimisation in another file would just be a matter of adding that file 
to the list of files that trigger a clinic run. would be somewhat 
notable as the first Python file we do that for, but it isn't a novel concept 

That leads into my main comment on the AC patch: the files that are explicitly 
listed as triggering a new clinic run should be factored out into a named 
variable and that list commented accordingly.
